Nights Alive is a youth initiative focused on enhancing the quality of life for teens in Flagstaff aged 14-17, with an emphasis on social inclusion and positive relationship building. Nights Alive is located in the basement of the FFCS building at 4809 - 49 Avenue, Killam, AB. This is a centre for teens to "drop-in" and hang out during the week and weekends, and will also engage teens in activities or events.
Drop-In: The drop-in function of Nights Alive is to provide teens with a place to hang out. They will also have access to the following gaming equipment:
- Pool table
- Ping pong table
- Xbox Live
- Musical Instruments
Staff will organize events and activities for the teens to engage in. Some examples of these MAY include:
- West Edmonton Mall
- Theme Nights
- Ski Trips
- The Fringe
- Cooking Classes
- Guest Speakers
Staff will be particularly interested in hearing what the teens would like to do for these events and activities.
Drop in nights will be free of charge. Fees will be developed for the events and activities based on a cost recovery basis.
One full time individual has been hired to run the Nights Alive program, in addition to part time program workers to assist the Program Director.
Volunteers will be key to the success of this program, as they are with any community program. Volunteers are needed to help staff supervise and manage drop in nights, as well as during the monthly events/activities. For more information on being a Nights Alive volunteer, click here.
All staff and volunteers will be required to undergo a criminal records/vulnerable sector check. To sign up to become a volunteer, please contact Sue at 780-385-4148.
